I recall the incident where Jehovah confused the verbal languages of man, with each hearing conversation as babbling. (Genesis 11:1-9) He scattered them because they were arrogant, rebellious and believed they could ascend to the glory of heaven. I am thankful for his love, mercy and grace which provides a way to restore relationships with him and one another.
The church is the body of Christ. The moment we receive him as Savior and Lord we receive a second language. Believers from vastly different backgrounds and cultures freely converse with the language of love.The Holy Spirit serves as interpreter, drawing us together with the bond of love.
I am eager to learn from Jesus, head of the body, his example of sacrificial body language. He offered his sinless body on Calvary’s cross as the substitute for my sins, paying my ransom and releasing me from bondage to sin. From his thorn crowned brow, nail scarred hands and feet, to pierced side and broken heart, his crucified body tenderly spoke, I love you. “No one has greater love than this that someone would lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13 HCS).”
